The idea for this project came to me while reading the new issue of the AK Wornart Collection.
Representing an M1 in this form seemed like a good idea to me.
It is intended to represent a used M1 that is stored in the Army depot and [...]
A highly detailed and a well-engineered model. I added Tamiya's M1A1 Abrams on top of the trailer.
Two major drawbacks of the Meng kit; rubber tires that after a year had big cracks. Thanks to the large number of tires, I swooped them [...]
I haven't posted on here in a while but just started my new project. SURPRISE it's not a 1/700 ship. I started on my new 1/35 Ryefield M1 Abrams. I got bored doing ships so I changed pace. I must say that this kit is worth the price. The [...]
These M1 Abrams were seen during winter maneuver exercises in Germany.

The Abrams tank has always been a challenge for me to model. I've never had a happy time building these, being so infuriated by the old Dragon offering with the separate guide teeth on their floppy, rubbery tracks that I didn't even bother [...]
I don't get to build much these days, due to extensive work and study commitments, and not to mention 1/5 scale humans wandering about the house. Nevertheless I managed to finish Ryefield Models magnificent M1A2 Abrams by combining both [...]
The basic idea came from a yellow-green vehicle, or I saw a vehicle with a similar color. I didn't look for it, but I don't think it was. I hope you like it.
Another Abrams, this time I built Tamiya's 1/35th M1A2 Operation Iraqi Freedom kit into a USMC M1A1 in Norway for Exercise Reindeer II in 2016. Tamiya includes the Marine M1A1 as an option in this boxing. I added a bustle rack extension [...]
Or maybe I should have titles this one "None Shall Pass". This being my third post here at iModeler, you may notice a pattern with my builds. Anyway, this is Dragon's M1A2 SEP kit converted into an AUS M1A1 with an Arms Corps [...]
